KNOXVILLE (WATE) -  A Greene County man entered a guilty plea last Friday in the 2005 murder of his wife.

Pamela Knight was last seen in October of 2005, when she left her Fountain City home with her husband, Paul Knight, and was never heard from again.

In February 2012, her remains were found in a wooded area in Loudon County.

Knight was indicted by a grand jury and brought back to Tennessee earlier this year for arraignment.

On Friday, Knight entered a guilty plea to second degree murder charges in Pamela's death.

He could receive a sentence of between 15 and 60 years in prison.
